Products That Can Help You Stop Procrastinating and Make Exercise Less Grueling
April 27, 2015
There was a time when “being active” was synonymous with “having fun.” However, today it seems that most adults have a hard time making time for exercise. Eighty percent of Americans do not get the recommended amount of exercise each week1. There are a variety of reasons that this can occur including lack of energy, a busy schedule, and joint discomfort. At Nu Skin we recognize that being physically active is an important component of living young and enjoying life to the fullest. We offer a variety of products and programs that can make physical activity more enjoyable and can provide you with a better understanding of why being active is so important!
Exercise, One of the Most Important Things for Your Health
The Center for Disease Control reports that regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can help with weight management, heart health, blood sugar regulation, bone and muscle strength, improved mental health, and more2. Finding time in your busy schedule to incorporate physical activity may seem like a daunting task for some. Fortunately there are many ways to be active, and with the help of Nu Skin’s products, you may find that it’s easier than you expected to achieve your goals.
Supporting Your Physical Activity Goals
If you’re trying to get active as the warmer weather approaches, you may want to consider incorporating some of the following products into your routine:
ageLOC R2 is a great companion to a more physically active lifestyle, targeting cellular energy at the source. Formulated with ingredients selected through unique gene expression science, ageLOC R2 comes in both a day and night product. Taken in the morning, ageLOC R2 Day can give you the energy you need to commit to a regular exercise program. Taken in the evening, ageLOC R2 Night targets cellular purity processes while you sleep so you’ll wake up ready to take on the day!*
Getting active can be difficult or discouraging if you are carrying excess weight. This 90 day program is designed to help you see a visible difference in body shape within the first 2 weeks. Gene expression can impact whether your body stores or burns fat and can help support lean muscle maintenance—a key tissue to health metabolism even when your body is at rest. TR90 can help you achieve the transformation you’re striving for.*
Overdrive provides a blend of nutrients to promote normal energy metabolism during exercise and supports post-exercise muscle recovery. In addition to these benefits, Overdrive also helps combat free radical exposure that is normally created during exercise.*
Nutrient Blend Includes:
A full range of B-complex vitamins which provide nutrients that help in converting carbohydrates, protein, and fat into usable energy.
Antioxidants which protect cells against the increased free radical production during exercise.
Proteolytic enzymes which target post-exercise muscle recovery, which may help to alleviate muscle discomfort.
Overdrive is designed to be taken before you exercise to help fortify your body with nutrients to power through your workout, and after to replenish the nutrients used up during exercise. Because Overdrive is used in conjunction with your exercise session, you do not need to take it on days that you don’t exercise.
If joint discomfort is stopping you from being physically active, any combination of these products can help you maintain joint mobility.
FlexCrème - Use for immediate relief from stiff joints or to temporarily relieve muscle stiffness.
Cartilage Formula - Delivers glucosamine and other ingredients to support joint comfort.
MarineOmega - Offers important fatty acids that tend to be deficient in most Western diets. These fatty acids have been shown in numerous studies to support joint function by balancing the body’s natural inflammatory process.
Although it can take several weeks to recognize the joint benefits of Cartilage Formula and MarineOmega, they provide excellent long-term joint benefits to complement the immediate, but shorter term benefits of FlexCrème.
Being physically active is one of the best things you can do for your health. So set goals, be creative, and find ways to live young with Pharmanex dietary supplements. ■
